CONCERT – click pictures to enlarge
This was Djongology’s second concert to support Tilden Project Nepal and they didn’t disappoint. The event was sponsored by Scania, Atkinson and an anonymous donor, so all proceeds from the event came to TPN.
Ben Holder (Violin), Richard Smith (lead guitar), John Smith (rhythm guitar) and Steve Peters (bass) provided an exciting evening of Cafe de Paris style jazz, plus a glimpse of New Orleans style featuring Karl Hird on clarinet/saxophone.
The audience, ranging in age from 7 to 70 absolutely loved the fantastic range of music from Djongology, were generous in their applause and in their support of the work of TPN.
This retrospective one-day exhibition of paintings and work by Samapatti Neeraj (formerly Wendy Hall) was held in the Green Room at the Corn Exchange Theatre, Stamford.
Samapatti was a talented painter/illustrator and a friend of Tilden’s family.
Before her premature death in 2009, she expressed a wish to continue to raise money through her work to support Tilden Project Nepal.
So at the exhibition, which saw a constant stream of visitors from 10.00am to 10.00pm, there was a range of posters and postcards of her work for sale.
These can still be purchased via this website see Samapatti Postcards.
The exhibition, on the day, raised £800 for Tilden Project Nepal.
Many, many thanks to all those who attended our Top of the World 2010 events, we raised a grand total of £5,000 which will go directly to help our work in Aruchour.
